FITN:  Klamath River Dam Removal

Teen Arrested For Taping Fish To ATMs: KSL says a Provo, Utah teen was recently charged for taping fish to ATMs around town. The teen's Instagram account, "fish_bandit84," gained a following of 52,000 people. Police believe his fish videos were meant as a joke and to gain followers. The teenager once taped a fish to a Provo police car. He caused minimal damage.

https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2023-12-07/advocates-say-a-mexican-startup-is-illegally-selling-a-health-drink-from-an-endangered-fish

Below is a wikipedia entry about totoaba and why it is an endangered species.  The damming and overuse of the Colorado River has changed the salinity of the totoaba spawning grounds.  That is severely affecting the totoaba population.  They are a slow growing fish that does not spawn until it is 6-7 years old. Also, the Chinese use totoaba bladders in “traditional medicine” which can sell for 20,000 each. Their own related species the bahaba is in very short supply so they have switched to totaba.

The big mouth buffalo is a filter feeder.  Its cousins the smallmouth buffalo and the black buffalo eat “stuff” like mussels, crustaceans, plants and algae.  They have throat teeth to grind food.  I am pretty sure what I caught was a smallmouth buffalo in full spawn colors

Dating Survey A new survey by Fishbrain reveals that women find men, who hold fish in their dating profile pictures, more attractive than men that don’t. Other findings:  - 22% of male Florida Tinder users pose with a fish  - 46% of college sorority women agree that men, who hold fish are attractive  - 25% of women found men holding a Great Northern Tilefish to be the most attractive, followed by the Sailfish CH-this was really cute and i wish they would do more from different areas.  This one is clearly very Florida surf and inshore species heavy.  What about New Hampshire or Kansas???

Todd Corayer Book Review  https://fishwrapwriter.com/2023/08/17/the-meditative-fisherman/

Hydrilla Invades Maine by Todd Corayer

https://fishwrapwriter.com/2023/10/04/hydrilla-invades-indian-lake/

Todd points out that hydrilla is a very tough highly adaptable invasive, it survives just find in a dirty fish tank with poor lighting.  It only gets into waters by aquarium dumpers.  It gets spread by boats if they do not follow good sanitation and Todd covers all that and more in his excellent article.

Miso Glazed Striped Bass

 

Two 6-8 Oz portions of striped bass, skin on, scaled and boned

¼ C. White miso paste

¼ C. Maple Syrup(the real stuff)

1 T. high quality Dijon or whole grain mustard

2 Bunches broccolini, sweet baby broccoli or asparagus

1 Lb Fingerling potatoes or baby Yukon gold.(or taters from Aldi cut down to size.)

Pre Heat oven to 400 F

Wash the potatoes, cut any that are too large for a bite size down into appropriate size

toss potatoes in a bowl, drizzle a T. olive oil and a big pinch of salt and pepper, toss to coat and roast in a 400 F oven on a sheet pan.

While the potatoes roast, combine miso, maple syrup and mustard in a small bowl.

Trim broccolini or asparagus ends and season with olive oil, salt and, pepper like the potatoes.

Once potatoes are tender, approximately 20-25 minutes, place asparagus or broccolini on a sheet pan and roast for 5-8 minutes. Or until veg is tender and barely coked through.

Once pan is hot, add a T. of high heat(canola, grapeseed, avocado) oil and coat bottom of pan. Add fish to oiled pan, skin side down, and cook on medium high heat until skin is crispy, approx 3-5 minutes. Flip fish gently and finish in the oven for 2-4 minutes, or until fish is cooked mostly through.

remove pan from oven and begin to brush the miso mixture on the fish, coat well and place back in oven for 1 minute to set the glaze, repeat at least 1x more time. remove fish from pan and enjoy.
